Plans for the Micro-Bath

While I’m working out the final details for the living room and TV room, it seems like a good time to knock out the downstairs micro-bath.

I don’t think I’ve ever posted a good picture of the micro-bath…possibly because it’s nearly impossible to photograph…so apologies for crappy angles and awful lighting. The truly depressing shade of brown on the walls does not help matters.

When I say “micro-bath” I’m not really exaggerating–this is the smallest bathroom I’ve seen outside of Europe. You can wash your hands while still sitting on the toilet.  This was actually immensely helpful while I was pregnant because I could use the sink to hoist my ginormous self off of the toilet.

I’ve actually had a plan for our minuscule bathroom for years, I’ve just never gotten around to it. The other week Spoonflower was having a free-shipping event so I decided it was finally time to buy the wallpaper I’ve been eyeing for practically forever…but when I went to the site I immediately saw a different wallpaper that really jumped out at me.  What to do?

I asked, you answered, and the overwhelming response was that the new print I found caught your eye too!

I have a sample of the wallpaper on the way, because it’s always a good idea to get a sample of things like this, especially when they’re on the spendier side.

The wallpaper will just be on the wall behind the toilet.  I actually think that a crazy wallpaper could look cool on every wall in a small space…but I think that might frighten Matt a little bit, so accent wall it is.  The paint color will probably change once I get the actual wallpaper sample, but I’m currently thinking a light, blushy, pink.

One of the best tips for a space is to always make sure you bring a but of warmth into a room.  An easy way to do this is use some natural elements, like wood, plants, or even woven baskets. Here I’m planning a wood shelf behind the toilet and a wood-framed mirror. Since this room gets zero natural light it will need a fake plant for any greenery.. I’m hoping to find a good-looking, fake string-of-pearls succulent, but any dangley plant would work here.
